Many of us try to hold onto the last few remnants of summer for as long as possible, but there is no denying that the fall season is here. And with the color and weather changing it can be the perfect time to give your home a brand-new look. Below you’ll find a few ideas to take your homes look from ordinary to extraordinary. So, here at Royal Home Improvement we wanted to take a moment to share some of our favorite decorating ideas for fall.
Make a “Mumkin”
Using a pumpkin as a planter can be a creative way to spice up your home for fall. And with Mums being one of the more popular flowers of the season, why not combine the two? Carve out a large pumpkin and place a mum inside to make a classic “mumkin” for your patio, front porch, or walkway. Simply line each side of your home’s walkway with “mumkin” planters to enhance the curb appeal of your home this fall.
Coordinate Warm Colors
Whether your decorating the front porch, dining room, bedroom, or kitchen, make sure to coordinate warm corresponding colors that complement the season. Using red, orange, yellow and brown colors are perfect for creating the look and feel of autumn for your home. We recommend decorating from dark to light, vertically in each room. Use darker colors for the floor, medium color values for the walls, and light values for the ceiling to mimic the look and feel of the outside world.
Pick a focal point
Before your go crazy with the fall decorations, select a single focal point to create a wow factor in your home. The focal point is the first-place viewers’ eyes should land when they enter the room. To put it simply, it’s the star of the room. There are a few simple ways to build the perfect focal points for fall. First, the focal point of a room is typically the biggest feature and usually faces the main entrance. A fireplace, picture window, or a built-in bookcase are all examples of a few focal point possibilities. Once you’ve chosen your focal point its time to spice it up. Here is the place to get creative with decorations, colors, pillows, or flowers, that give the room the perfect ascent of fall.
Creating a wheat wreath is a great way to give any door the perfect accessory to the fall season. It’s an easy simple way to compliment any door in your home. Simply gather a wheat bunch (available at craft retailers) and place a rubber band around them to hold the stems in place. Cut the stems of the wheat to the desired length and tie a ribbon around them. Using a wreath hangar, determine your desired height, and hang the wreath from any door in your home. This will give your home and door the perfect accent to the season.
Pumpkin Candle Holders
For this project using a smaller pumpkin is ideal for creating the perfect ornament for your table, fireplace mantle, or kitchen counter. Simply cut a circle into each pumpkin, scoop out the center, and add candle to each. But don’t stop there. Get creative by decorating each pumpkin holder in a unique way. Ribbons, painting, and even carving can give these holders the right look to compliment your home. The kids will love helping with this project and it’s a fun, festive way to bring the autumn season into your home.
